Welcome to the Communcations Group web page. This specialty group is comprised of individuals with extensive, wide-ranging industry experience and skills.
The mandate of this group is to go beyond simply getting the job done to the delivery of superior communications engineering and design.
We have experience with multifaceted designs (multiple protocols, various interfaces such as RS232/RS485/Ethernet, high-speed IP backbone for hundreds of sites, etc.).
Many of the wireless systems we design surmount rugged terrain and are built to work in harsh environments. We have designed systems connecting hundreds of sites and are capable of designing virtually any scale and type of network. In all cases we plan for the future by accounting for the possibility of expansion and future throughput needs.
Protocols we typically deal with include: DF1, MODBUS, BSAP, ROC, MODBUS TCP, TCP/IP.
We can facilitate any of your communications needs. We do many system upgrades (improve speed, expand, etc.) and often get called to resolve outstanding issues.
With all our designs we provide supporting documentation. Typical Documentation provided to clients:
